I have a security certificate and license. I applied to many institutions especially ISKUR [Turkish Employment Agency] but nobody made me a return. In Akçakale there are many unemployed like me and waiting for a job too. This is a general situation and I know it. I can go to another city for work but my young child should be treated regularly so I cannot leave him. My wife cannot do hospital work because she is Syrian.”

Give me a job opportunity. Not for me but for my 18-months-old single kidney child I want.” (Osman Gülebak - ILKHA)
